Friday Five for September 4, 2015


1. Work is going at a steady pace for my new project. There is a lot of talking going on. I keep reminding myself that it is the base for a nine part series, so I have to make it solid. It's going to be one of those cases if the characters keep yammering at each other, I'm going to send the bad guys to them!

2. I had a fantastic time co-hosting the IWSG. I visited over 120 blogs. What a surprise they gave us! It's a wonderful opportunity. I'm going to try to think of a story idea for the contest. Who else is entering?

3. No short story news this week. This is the first week in a while I haven't received a rejection. I still have six stories in submission. I need to send out a few more, but I haven't found the right venues for them yet.

4. It's the long Labor Day weekend. Yay! We don't have any plans except a playdate tonight and maybe going to the apple orchard at some point. It's going to be super hot, though. Might have to refill the backyard kiddie pool.

5. Join me on Monday for my big news! My newsletter subscribers have already heard. If you want to be the first to hear all the exciting stuff, please subscribe by typing your email address in that widget on my sidebar. You'll get a free ebook!

    Glad you had a good time co-hosting the IWSG. It really is more fun on the host side, isn't it? And hope you will enter the contest.

    No big weekend plans here either, but I often prefer it that way anyway. :)

  5. Yes, congratulations, it's nice to be in on the big news.
    How could you not enter the IWSG contest, it's perfect for you.
    I'm trying to come up with something. Now that I have my Halloween short done, maybe I'll get the perfect inspiration!

  9. We may be going to the zoo or a movie on Monday, but that's about it. It is time for the apple farm, though. Need to get on that!

  10. Congratulations, Christine! As a subscriber, I enjoy being in-the-know. Regarding submissions, things have been pretty quiet lately for me as well. Maybe the editors will be returning to work after Labor Day, and we'll have ourselves an acceptalanche.
